If I knew I could…in 5 minutes…


On Fridays I participate in a little tradition with others to write with abandon, just long enough to speak my ❥

  We throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not. For five minutes flat. You’re welcome to play along. The rules are easy.






 If I knew I could, I would…


Write the book that is, has been on my heart, without fear in all truth. I would heal my son’s hearts. I would be a great mother without the flaws I’ve retrained from a not so great life. I would be less selfish and more loving. I would conquer the rage and the resentment once and for all.

If I knew I could I would be fearless…courageous and no one’s opinion would matter. I would be able to understand that what other’s think is not my business; even when their thinking did not have me shining.

If I knew I could I’d be where life was easy and I’d be able to experience joy unceasingly, with my love at my side…

If I knew I could this post would be more selfless…more altruistic…

If I knew I could I would be 100% okay with me….

If I knew I could…and I understand I can, I would walk in the light of who Andrea is in God‘s sight.

I would walk out in humility the fact that I was Fearfully and Wonderfully made for the praise and glory of my Father God…

                                                                                       I would walk as the daughter of the KING!



Blessings Loves

Author: Hopeannfaith

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
